Kmart Previews Doorbusters for Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day
Kmart has released details on the deals the national chain plans to release for Black Friday. The doorbusters will include products from all categories, including home tools, appliances, electronics and toys. The chain is open early in the morning hours on Black Friday, but will also be open on Thanksgiving Day at many locations. Kmart expanded their hours to help shoppers beat the rush and avoid long lines and crowds if they’re willing to shop during the holiday. The chain has marked down some of their most popular items across the store to help gift givers save more money this year.
While some national retail chains have added Thanksgiving Day shopping opportunities this year, only Kmart has offered this service for over 20 consecutive years. This tradition has allowed thousands of families to get items needed for Thanksgiving Dinner at the last minute or to shop while the rest of the family spends time together. Exclusive plans and product lines only available at Kmart include Country Living, Bongo, Dream Out Loud by Selena Gomez, Smart Sense, and Sofia from Sofia Vergara.
The recently released circular for the event shows some shockingly low prices. The Panasonic 42” HDTV plasma screen will be available for only $399, a $150 savings over its original price. Nearly all fine jewelry will be marked down by 70%, with an extra 10% for any Red Tag marked items. The season’s hottest toys will be discounted by 50% or more, and discounts on bed and bath linens will go up to 40%. Basic kitchen appliances will be available for just $5. Shoppers that can get in between 5 am and 11 am will be able to pick up a PlayStation 3 with a 160GB hard drive for under $200, or a 6 foot tree from Blue Mountain for just $20.
